Wood jointers planers, bandsaw guides - With Secrets

Categories: Woodworking Plans Dresser | Author: admin 11.12.2012

Here's the skinny on thickness planers: They'll all dimension wood accurately, but the best machines leave less cleanup work for you to do afterward. With two Asian-made models selling for half the price of European makes, even a hobby woodworker can joint and plane wide stock with one space-saving unit. But just as with hot dogs, typically sold in packages of 10, and buns, sold in 8-packs, the math doesn't add up: Jointers commonly come in 6" and 8" widths, while planers start at 12".


And second, the prices of the Asian-made models nearly equal the prices of stand-alone 12" jointers, so it's like getting the planer for free. Fences on European machines mount more like a Biesemeyer-style tablesaw fence on one end of the jointer bed.
Two-piece tables require removing the fence before tipping the tables out of the way, and you may have to move the dust hose to a different port on the machine to serve the planer.


Still, they seem a good space-saving option for someone on a limited budget getting started in woodworking.
